Apple Updates MacBook Pro

Apple today updated its MacBook Pro line of notebooks with the latest Intel Core 2 Duo processors, memory up to 4GB, and high-speed graphics in a stunning, lightweight, aluminum enclosure that is just one-inch thin.

The new MacBook Pro is available in 15-inch models with a new mercury-free, power-efficient LED-backlit display and a 17-inch model with an optional high-resolution display. All models include a built-in iSight video camera for video conferencing on-the-go, Apple’s MagSafe Power Adapter that safely disconnects when under strain, and built-in 802.11n wireless networking for up to five times the performance and twice the range of 802.11g.

"With Intel Core 2 Duo performance, more memory and state-of-the-art graphics, this MacBook Pro is a portable powerhouse for creative and professional users," said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing. "Apple’s notebooks have always led the industry in innovation with features like built-in 802.11 and the MagSafe Power Adapter, and now the industry’s first 15-inch LED-backlit display is another step toward completely eliminating mercury from our displays."

Every MacBook Pro model includes an Intel Core 2 Duo processor with 4MB of shared L2 cache, an 800 MHz frontside bus and 2GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM memory, running professional applications like Final Cut Pro 6 and Logic Pro 7 more than 50 percent faster than the original MacBook Pro with Core Duo. Delivering more realistic graphics for animation and gaming, every MacBook Pro now includes the state-of-the art NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT and is more than 50 percent faster than the original MacBook Pro with Core Duo.

The MacBook Pro’s lightweight, aluminum enclosure is just one-inch thin and is available in three models: 2.2 GHz and 2.4 GHz 15-inch MacBook Pro models, and a 2.4 GHz 17-inch MacBook Pro model. The new 15-inch MacBook Pro models feature a brand-new, power-efficient LED-backlit display and are the first of Apple’s notebooks to transition to LED backlighting as part of the company’s effort to eliminate the use of mercury in its products. The 17-inch model now offers a new optional 1920-by-1200 high-resolution display, providing over 30 percent more screen real estate than the standard 1680-by-1050 display.

Designed for mobile professionals, the MacBook Pro includes a built-in iSight video camera for video conferencing on-the-go, Apple’s MagSafe Power Adapter that magnetically connects the power cord to the MacBook Pro and safely disconnects when under strain, and the latest generation of 802.11n wireless networking for up to five times the performance and twice the range of 802.11g. Every new MacBook Pro also includes built-in 10/100/1000 BASE-T Gigabit Ethernet for high-speed networking, Bluetooth 2.0+EDR (Enhanced Data Rate), a FireWire® 800 and a FireWire 400 port, a backlit illuminated keyboard, an ExpressCard/34 expansion card slot for expansion solutions such as 3G wireless networking, and a DVI video output to connect up to a 30-inch Apple Cinema HD Display.

The MacBook Pro comes with iLife® '06, the next generation of Apple's award-winning suite of digital lifestyle applications featuring iPhoto®, iMovie® HD, iDVD®, GarageBand™ and iWeb™.

Advanced Media Inc. Brings Certified RIDATA Brand HD DVD-R and RW To the North American Market

Advanced Media, Inc. is the manufacturer and marketer of the popular RIDATA brand of recordable DVD media, electronic storage products, and digital media accessories. Today, the company announced that parent company RITEK is the only Taiwan-based optical disc manufacturer to offer certified HD-DVD-R (recordable, write once) and HD DVD-RW (rewritable) media. Advanced Media will provide marketing, sales and distribution of the discs to the United States.

"What the certification means to consumers is that they can be assured that certified RIDATA HDDVD's are a compatible, high quality HDDVD to purchase. Taiwan is a large supplier of DVD media to the U.S. Through our parent company RITEK and its enormous production capacity, Advanced Media can quickly respond to market demands in the shortest time possible. We will continue to leverage our competitive manufacturing advantages to provide U.S. consumers both Blu Ray and HDDVD discs at affordable prices," stated Harvey Liu, president of Advanced Media Inc.

Because of the quick progression of formats and speeds in optical media, Ritek developed an internal manufacturing process named a Flexible Manufacturing System (FMS). RITEK's manufacturing capability for CD, DVD+R/-R/RW/ DL (single-sided double-layer) discs was helpful in quickly expanding current high end production lines to produce high quality recordable HDDVD's and obtaining the certification.

The certified RIDATA brand HDDVD-R or RW discs are available for purchase now. Volume production will begin in the second half of this year as more HDDVD drives enter the market and increase the demand for media.

The RIDATA HD DVD-R medium supports Advanced Access Content System (AACS) state-of-the-art AES cryptography. It was developed to overcome the shortcomings of the Content Scrambling System (CSS) found in DVD video. AACS enables authorized use, prohibits unauthorized copying and distribution, and repairs holes in copy protection.

Compared to current DVD technology, HD DVD offers state-of-the-art picture quality as well as superior features and functionality. Multiple audio and video streams, up to 7.1 channel surround sound, and more user-friendly graphical interfaces are just a few of these advancements.

Micronet Smashes eSATA Disk Array Capacity Barrier with New 5 Terabyte Platinum RAID Pro

MicroNet Technology, an innovator in storage solutions for small and medium businesses (SMBs), today introduced the Platinum RAID Pro™, a multi-terabyte eSATA RAID solution that transcends the capacity limitations of SATA disk arrays and the performance bottlenecks of USB and FireWire storage with a compact transportable unit that provides simplicity and ease-of-use, allowing digital video professionals to focus on their business and not on data storage.

MicroNet's new 5 terabyte Platinum RAID Pro combines the highest capacity of any eSATA disk array on the market with a new performance-focused design built around a 64-bit Intel XScale processor to accelerate I/O throughput, and eSATA connectivity that provides more data bandwidth and eliminates the performance penalties of USB and FireWire bridging. Designed for small and medium businesses who need high-capacity and high-performance storage but not high-complexity storage, the Platinum RAID Pro delivers extraordinary ease-of-use. It is completely operating system independent and requires no drivers to be installed. The unit is factory-configured for RAID 5 so users can simply plug it in and immediately enjoy the benefits of huge capacity expansion and parity RAID data protection.

The capacity breakthrough achieved by MicroNet is the result of design innovations in the eSATA host bus adapter and RAID controller to eliminate the 2 terabyte volume size limitation that restricts the available capacity of alternative eSATA-based disk arrays, allowing customers to access the full 5 TB capacity potential of the Platinum RAID Pro. To take advantage of this unprecedented capacity, host computers must be running a modern operating system, including Windows Server 2003 and above, Windows Vista, recent Linux releases and Mac OS X, that is not burdened with older ATA address limitations.

"Because of the growing storage demands present in the SMB space, more customers are seeking greater capacity at affordable price points," said Behzad Eshghieh, CEO of MicroNet. "Specifically, organizations with storage-intensive digital media applications with a need for ready-to-use solutions to protect, transport and secure their irreplaceable files. The Platinum RAID Pro was created to meet the mammoth capacity and performance demands of these customers while maintaining MicroNet's reputation for storage products that are simple to install, manage and scale."

At the heart of the Platinum RAID Pro is the 64-bit Intel processor matched with 128 MB of error-correcting cache, providing the robust performance to easily handle the most intensive SMB RAID applications, including digital video, HD audio, digital imaging and streaming backup. Five 3 Gbps SATA-2 drives can be configured for RAID 0, 1, 3, 5, 0+1 and JBOD operation. eSATA connectivity ensures that users can quickly address the mammoth available capacity, providing more than a 200 percent raw data rate improvement compared to FireWire- and USB-based external storage solutions. Performance is further improved with the pure SATA environment that bypasses the throughput hits imposed by having to convert SATA drive protocols to FireWire and USB signals.

The Platinum RAID Pro enclosure is a durable yet lightweight aluminum and Plexiglas design that includes a built-in handle to enhance portability. In addition to standard primary storage applications for SMBs, the convenient enclosure design makes the unit ideal for a variety of applications, including backup of multiple departmental systems and distribution of high-capacity digital content across multiple locations.

MicroNet's Platinum RAID Pro is currently available with pricing starting at $2349 for a 2.5 terabyte array, $2999 for a 3.75 TB configuration and $4499 for the high-end 5TB model. Customers can configure the array with appropriate eSATA HBA based on their host system requirements, either a two-port PCI-E HBA or a four-port PCI-X adapter.
